Day 1 - Run

Needed to get out, out of time, but made time anyway. Out for a walk/run, but did a mile jog.


34:00 min

I was going to run in the morning, but got caught up in work. Then off to lunch and traveling to a volleyball game. Then watching, then home after 9:30.

A good day, but a bad one.

Day 1 - Run

Got out to sweat, going a 1/4 mile, then jogging a bit over a mile and jog/walk back. I pressed, with some of the jogs getting up to speed and making it hard to breathe, a pleasant pain in my chest.

44:00 run/walk


This has been a crazy week for me. I was out of town Wed/Thur, and managed to work out, but I got home at 10pm Thur, had to leave the house at 7am Fri, and was still fighting illness. I was at work, then out watching my kid run cross country. He was still sick, so I ended up leaving the meet early, not having time to walk around much. I had hoped to walk a mile while I was there, but timing was tough.

Home at 10pm, I decided not to push things and go to bed. A missed day.

Sat I was up early again, out at 7 for an event. Then a friend came over and my wife wanted to take kids to town for some errands. Again, not home until after 10, so bailed on exercise.

Sunday I relaxed all morning. I was going to go out and walk, but my wife needed some help, and then a volleyball practice for my daughter. I helped out and sweated, but not a great workout. Home too late to do anything again, and need to heal.

I don't think I've had three days off in years, but it came this week.

Day 1 - Run

A slow, easy run, bumpered by walks on both sides. I was a bit beat up and my calf started aching a little. Not what I wanted, but I managed to slow down and complete my mile.

25:00 min run

Sad Face

I was thinking I wouldn't miss a date anytime soon, but I managed to do so when I went to a school board meeting after kids' practice instead of staying home and taking a walk. Didn't get home until 9:30 and called it a night.

Day 4 - Elliptical/Swim

My knee has been aching a bit. I can feel myself running hard, pounding a  bit, and maybe overdoing it. So I decided not to try and run too much, too fast, and changed things up.

Today I hit the gym for 20min on the elliptical, just breaking a sweat, and then the pool for some work. I certainly could feel myself struggling to swim a bit, and that 20 minutes made a difference. Plus I'm out of shape for swimming, but I did put in my 1200 yards
